    Why did you reformat your machine? Did you reinstall RealPlayer from the internet, or was it an Archive & Install? :)

    Since you reformatted your computer, and the files aren't playing now, my best guess is that the files require an additional codec. Probably flip4mac, or a divx/xvid codec is needed.

    Try getting Perian, as that has practically every codec (including DivX/XVid), you will also need Flip4Mac though.

    Second the Perian recommendation. Actually makes scrubbing in QT (sorta)useful.
